Searching for authenticity in genuine Nepal and not for a heavy and challenging trek? This is your deal! Pure, unspoiled nature at the foothills of the Himalayas : that is our Rara lake trek.
Rara lake is situated in the remote northwest of Nepal.
Our trek begins at Jumla, the largest city in the hilly area of western Nepal. We climb gradually through mixed woods (oak, pine, chestnut, birch and rhododendron). In the meadows we meet the sheep and their shepherds.
The wild animals from this national park are: the brown bear, leopard, black panther, musk deer, red panda, wild boar, rhesus monkey, langur monkeys and numerous bird species.
Rara is Nepal’s largest lake and lies at an altitude of 3050m. The lake is stunning, surrounded by alpine meadows and dense forests, amidst an incredible peace.
During the last four days of the trek, you have a nice view on the Mugu mountain range in the south of Humla and at the border with Tibet. In the last steep section (leading up to the second pass before Jumla) you will pass remote villages surrounded by grassland.
From Jumla we fly back to Kathmandu via Nepalgunj.
Rara is one of the least visited National Parks of Nepal. It gives you an impression of the culture and untouched nature in the remote areas of this country.
